Actually, the Power.4e has the ISA COM3 & COM4 configuration, but the
Power.4B has all four devices. On the older Power.3 board..those were
used for Keyboard & Mouse I/O (COM1 & COM2) and the regular serial
I/O was through COM3 & COM4. The newer Power.3e has the same 4 I/O
ports, but also uses the new Tundra Universe VMEbus I/O which Per
has running very well now.
Also, we are no longer constrained to be PREP or CHRP compliant for
these VMEbus & CompactPCI boards.
I agree with your idea to make it a console variable (passed.)
